Change of Plans

I hade made a decision on the jelly roll pattern and then Mr. Wonderful said the colors for the housewarming quilt should be teal, purple and blue. Back to the drawing board! These are not prominent colors in my stash. Then I remembered that I had a few of these charm packs.

I traded some pieces from two of the packs and came up with this.

Way too small, I know. But I have a plan! Stay tuned. I got distracted by an invite to the pumpkin farm with the three Es.

When I got home, I realized the second clue for the Sajou Quilt Along was posted. So I whipped that out. Ole Abe is leaning to the right! Lol!

I hope the next step sets him to rights, if not, I’ll improvise.

I’m behind on my Military Mystery QAL. I hope to get caught up with that tomorrow. We were visiting my sweet MIL in Missouri last weekend so I’m running behind on a few things.

Have a great day!

A Quick Jelly Roll Quilt

That’s what I need! Mr. Wonderful asked me the other day if I had a quilt he could give for a housewarming gift. Ummmmm….not at the moment! But I do have this Mirage jelly roll that might work for a young couple.

I could pair it with this background fabric.

I could use this pattern.

Or I could use my fall back 16 patch design like this.

I need to figure this out very quickly so I better get to work!

Have a great day!

Sajou Quilt Along

Lori over at Humble Quilts has started a new little quilt along! Here are my pieces cut and ready to sew.

The little squares finish at 1 inch. Lori recommended fussy cutting something for the center. I decided to put Ole Abe in the middle and make mine patriotic.

This is part one all finished. I can’t wait for part two! You can still join in! Part one can be found here.

I have to say that this die from Accuquilt is an absolute life saver for little scrappy bits like this.

While working, I started listening to this book. This author was recommended to me by both my sister in law and brother in law last weekend. So far, so good!

Have a great day!

The Tie Quilt

I haven’t forgotten this project….though I have tried. Every now and then, it yells at me from under a pile of stuff in the sewing room.

I liked where this was headed, but I knew if I didn’t get every piece perfectly placed, that it would look all wrong. I finally decided to put it back on the design wall and play some more.

Still playing with this, but I think I might be getting somewhere.

Btw, I used these dies from Accuquilt to cut my leaves. What a time saver!

Have a great day!

Gwen’s Appliqué

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Gwen Marston’s work. I made this quilt ages ago and I still love it!

It was inspired by this quilt made by Gwen.

The above quilt is patterned in this book.

Since hubby and I had a trip planned, that meant getting a handwork ready to take. I rarely do any appliqué, but thought this would be a good time for a small appliqué project. These are my inspiration choices, all from Gwen’s book shown above.

I love her quirky, folk art quilts that are firmly rooted in tradition. Time to get to work!

Have a great day!

Finish It Up Friday ~ Arrow

Since this has now been gifted, I can share it with you here.

I am delighted with how this turned out! The pantograph used is called Petal Flambé and it is available from Urban Elementz

And this flannel backing was perfect.

Every now and again, a project comes along where every little piece seems to fall into place. This was one of those

Last Monday night, our craft group had a baby shower at my house. I think momma liked the quilt. 🙂

If all goes well, Baby Girl should be coming home today.

Have a great day!
